More HP spoilers


With Sirius' death, Harry now probably owns that house. (And the shrewish portait and possibly the Elf) and whatever money Sirius had in his Gringott's vault.

Okay, sure, from some povs, it should be for Remus, but that's not how things work.

A house. More money. This is major in a world where seventeen is adulthood.



In other news, I just got a phone call from my mother, who is visiting my brother and his family. My nephew is eight. He's a bright kid and a good reader.

He's reading GoF. His parents haven't read it first. And I suspect they'll ignore my advice and let him read OotP without reading it first, either. Since, you know.

They're kid's books. Which means that A. adults shouldn't read them and B. they're safe.

Then again, I'm not sure about Debby's reading level.

Re: Weighing In

It's not that Joshua is reading the book. It's that his parents didn't read it first so that they either know he can deal with it (being his parents, I'd assume they'd have a reasonable idea) or be on the alert in case he didn't.

Also, Joshua's mother isn't Jewish, and his father isn't religious. In fact, he might well be sent to a local Catholic school because the public schools are pretty bad where they are.

I'm not really afraid of Voldemort. I'm afraid of Cedric Diggory. The only death Joshua's been aware of is my father's, and he barely knew his grandfather - I think he'd seen Daddy twice consciously, and that before the age of five.

Of course, it's up to his parents. I just want them to act from knowledge, not from false ideas.
